The mission of United Way of Denton County is to improve lives in Denton County.
United Way of Denton County has been mobilizing resources to advance the common good in our community since 1951. We are local and autonomous, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit (community based) organization with a governing board of directors.
Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.
United Way of Denton County’s Community Impact and Allocations Committees focus on distributing resources across the building blocks of a good life in these key areas:
- Education – Helping Children and Youth Achieve Their Potential
- Income – Promoting Financial Literacy, Stability and Independence
- Health – Improving People’s Physical and Mental Health
United Way of Denton County is an efficient charitable organization that places on average 92% of all funds pledged to work in the community through impact projects and grant allocations to our non-profit partners. The extensive use of volunteers allows United Way of Denton County to maintain a small staff and low overhead.
United Way of Denton County offers a resource distribution system that is accountable; caring; responsive; and creative. It is regarded by donors, the community and partnering agencies as an effective and efficient system that provides the greatest impact on community needs and issues.
